Te Taka Pūmotu: Māori interpretation of the scientific periodic table
Join us during World Iron Awareness Week as we host PhD candidate, Ruihi Shortland, in this month’s webinar where she will be giving us an insight into her mahi developing te Taka Pūmotu, a Māori interpretation of the scientific periodic table.

Drawing from mātauranga Māori, kaupapa Māori and te reo Māori (within the elements of karakia, whakapapa, and kōrero pūrākau), Ruihi Shortland has begun the journey to reframe the Western periodic table of the elements through a te ao Māori lens, presenting a Māori interpretation of the scientific periodic table within the realms of Ranginui, Papatūānuku and their children.

Ruihi believes a Māori interpretation of the periodic table has the potential to enhance Māori participation in the pursuit of science education mastery and lead to an effective pūtaiao (science) discourse, as well as affirm indigenous pedagogical theories.
